Following the enormous success of her pocket guide to English grammar, spelling and maths, Lyn Magree's new title is a workbook that offers exercises for children to reinforce the skills they have learned. From a young age we begin to teach our children the alphabet, along with the numbers one to 10. While we may not realise it at the time, we have started them on the most important and core subjects of their school life - English and maths. The primary aim of the Pocket Basics books is to build children's confidence in their academic ability and allow them to feel comfortable with learning. The Pocket Basics for English and Maths: Workbook will assist them get the best academic start in life by helping them practise and revise the essentials of both English and maths. Covering many basic but important topics, the English section includes exercises on parts of speech, spelling, forms of address, and definitions and other areas, while the maths section tests children's skills in tables, division, fractions, percentages, interest and much more.
